Star Ocean - Till the End of Time


In Star Ocean, you're a 19 year old guy caught up in a battle on a distant planet. You try to get back to your family and friends, and sort out what is going on.

The RPG is very much like Final Fantasy set in a Star Trek universe. In fact they even have the code of non-interference - if a planet is a low-tech planet, you cannot interfere with its development by handing technology to it. Of course this becomes a main plot point.

You can have 3 characters in your party at a time, as you wander around towns and dungeons, watching the snow fall or rain streak. The graphics are quite nice, from the medieval style towns to futuristic spaceships. Lighting effects add to the realism. Even the menus are easy to read and navigate.

On the other hand, half of the females wear clothes intended to show off their skin - even when it's snowing out. Can't there be an RPG with women in NORMAL clothing?

Like all RPGs you spend time creating new items, building up characters and battling to gain experience. The combat is real time which is great for people with good reflexes but can be tough on those who would rather strategize and think through what they are doing.

The music ranges from great to iffy. Sometimes it gives a moody feeling - and sometimes it is completely inappropriate.

If you're an RPGer looking for more of a futuristic environment, give this one a try!

Score: 8/10
